l 1946 ANNUAL 1
SENIOR CLASS HISTORY
1942 - 1943
In the year 1942, the future class of 1946 entered the rank of high
school students. We suffered as all Freshies seem to, from being teased and
humiliated by the very superior upper classmen. Our enrollment was
thirtyfthree, with the girls leading by six.
We survived, however, and chose John Portwood to lead our class
through its perilous first year. Alice Slater kept notes on our meetings and
since we had so much business to attend, was assisted by Bernice Dawson.
Raymond Graf and Arthur Meyer well represented us on the Student
Council. Mrs. Fox was elected our adviser and held this position for the
first half of the year, when she was replaced by Mr. Huff.
We did a lot of deciding that year, it seems. We chose our class colors.
Then we decided to have a party - but what kind? It took us months to
make up our minds. VVe finally decided to have it in Shaw's barn. We
had lots of fun after all.
We gained a few: Frances Haley, Marilyn Wachtel, and Ada McCoy.
During the year we lost several students: Donald Fry, Ada McCoy, James
Gerstenslager, and George Marko.
The Seniors gave us an initiation party. We were miserable all day
with our dresses on wrong side out and all the terrible makefup they forced
us to wear. In the evening they gave us a swell party and we decided they
weren't so bad after all.
This seems to be the extent of our activities in the Freshman year.
Adios to our first year in high school.
1943 - 1944
Most eagerly did we start our sophomore year. Sophisticated, poised
and willing to give our advice to anyone whom we thought needed it.
We elected as our officers for the year Harold Reese, president, assisted
by Alice Slater, Secretary and Treasurer, Roberta Wilesg Student Council,
Kent Ripley and Virgil Markley. Miss Kalkas filled the capacity as our
We initiated the freshies this year. It was rather rough but lots of fun.
Our enrollment was boosted by the entrance of Arthur Boone and
Mardell Starcher. We lost some valued members, namely, Clarence Bricker,
Raymond Graf, YVilbur Swigart, Grace Pinkley, Mardell Starcher, Elmer

and Dolores Totten.
We shall now say "cheerio" to our Sophomore year.
1944 - 1945
We're finally upper classmen, and who could be prouder!
With much confidence we chose the following officers: President,
Jeannette Rook, Vice President, Arthur Boone, Secretary and Trasurer,
Bernice Dawson, and Student Council, Alice Slater and Arthur Meyer.
Mrs. Bibler guided us through this year with a firm hand.
We chose our class colors and flower this year, also our motto which
was changed in the senior year.
We got our snazzy class sweaters this year. They were bright red
and white. Our rings came during the summer.
Our class play "Tricking Trickstersn given May 4, was a big success.
We gained two new members Marian Johnson and Betty Smith.
The boys pressed their best suits and the girls got out their formals
-why? The ,junior'senior banquet, of course.
Comes May and the uppermost thought in our minds seems to be
"I-Iurrah! Next year we will be seniors." Well 'LAu Revoir" to our junior
1945 - 1946
On September 9, 19 seniors marched in and occupied the chosen
seats in study hall.
Well, finally we were seniors but not without some regrets. We,
wise and worldly seniors chose this year as officers, President, Jeannette
Rook, Vice President, Harold Reese, Secretary, Bernice Dawson, Treasf
urer, Vivian Steele, Student Council, Alice Slater, Arthur Meyer. Mrs.
Bibler was unanimously elected as our adviser.
It seems Dolores Totten just couldn't stay away so back she came
to graduate with us.
Our dramatic offering was "Let Me Grow Up", a three act comedy
which was the work of professionals.
We had a get together at Mrs. Bibler's and enjoyed games and ref
This seems to be the extent of our high school years and as we say
"soflong" to the little red school house, we sincerely hope each and all of
you enjoy getting an education as much as we did. Beatrice Dawson
